Public meeting ahead of £2 million Compton bridge replacement

Residents living in the Compton area are invited to a meeting tonight to find out about the replacement of a bridge along New Pond Road.

The Victorian road bridge is being replaced after reaching the end of its design life.

It means the B3000 will be closed from Monday April 23 until Friday July 13.

The public drop-in session is at Shalford Village Hall from 4pm to 7pm today.

Network Rail are investing £2 million to replace the bridge to ensure the road and the railway, which runs beneath it, can continue to operate safely.

Rail replacement buses will be in place over the Spring bank holiday weekend, (May 26-29) between Guildford and Haslemere, to enable Network Rail to complete the work.

Joanne Parkes from Network Rail, said: “This is a really important piece of work, taking place as part of Network Rail’s Railway Upgrade Plan, which will allow us to continue running a reliable service across this stretch of the network.

“We’d like to welcome all local residents to come along next Tuesday to find out more about this work and bring any questions they may have to the project team.”

Anyone unable to attend this event can contact Network Rail’s 24-hour helpline on 03457 11 41 41 for more information.
